Zaero vapes are disposable e-cigarettes for smokers trying to quit. Disposable vapes are an easy way to start vaping because of how simple they are to use; just open up the packaging and inhale. That’s all there is to it.
Zaero disposables come in 0%, 1.8%, 3% and 5% strengths. They’re pre-filled with 1.8ml of nicotine salt eliquid which is good for 250-350 puffs. Zaero disposables are available in seven different flavors. Is this the disposable to get if you’re quitting smoking?
- Pre-filled with 1.2ml of Ejuice
- 0, 1.8, 3 or 5% Nicotine Salt Ejuice
- 250-350 Puffs
- LED Indicator
Design & Build Quality
Zaero disposables are small, long and thin. They’re rectangular in shape with rounded edges at the top. Each disposable is ultra lightweight and weighs only 14 grams so it’s easy to throw one, or even a couple, in your pocket without adding any noticeable weight to your person.
All Zaero disposables come in the same matte black color and that’s great because they don’t stand out. Zaero is printed at the bottom of the disposable and there’s an icon that depicts the flavor right above it. These can be pulled out for a quick few puffs and they won’t attract much attention.
Zaero disposables are sold individually and come prefilled with 1.8ml of nicotine salt eliquid. 1.8ml should last somewhere between 250-350 puffs which is good enough for 2+ days of vaping, depending how heavily you use them. You can get these disposables in 0%, 1.8%, 3% or 5% nicotine strengths.
These come in seven different flavors and for this review I’m testing all of them.
Blueberry Lemonade: There’s a hint of lemonade flavor on the inhale but it’s quickly dominated by a neutral blueberry taste. This isn’t tangy or slightly sour like I would expect a lemonade flavor to be so it’s hard to call it lemonade. The blueberry flavoring also isn’t sweet enough and just tastes weird. I don’t hate this flavor but it’s not great.
Blue Razz: This blue raspberry flavor is just sweet enough and tastes quite good. It’s on the cusp of sweet and tart but it’s not sour. This disposable almost reminds me of those blue sour belt candies, just a toned down version.
Sweet Orange: Tangy and citrusy are how I can describe this flavor. It definitely tastes like a nice orange and it’s not chemical tasting in the slightest. This is a good flavor to vape on throughout the day.
Menthol: Cool and refreshing, this menthol flavor is slightly minty. It’s not so cool that it freezes your taste buds and to me that’s a good thing. I’ve tried a lot of menthol flavors but this is one of the best. If you smoked menthol cigarettes you’ll enjoy this flavor.
Banana: I don’t know what’s going on here but I’m not a fan. It tastes a bit like bananas, sure, but not very much. There’s no sweetness and the closest I can describe is overly baked bananas. I suggest you take a hard pass on this flavor.
Tobacco: A nice Virginia tobacco flavor that isn’t sweet or too strong. If you’re transitioning from smoking and want something familiar, this just might do the trick.
Chocolate: Not a flavor that you get to vape too often, this tastes like a semi-dark chocolate. If it was too sweet I don’t think I could vape it at all but as it is now, it’s good for a few puffs here and there. This isn’t an all day vape flavor but it might be good to hit every once in a while.
I was sent the 1.8% and 5% strengths for this review but there are 0% and 3% strengths available.
The 5% Zaero disposables have a slight throat hit but it’s softer and less aggressive than other disposables like the Plus Pods. I found myself taking longer, larger pulls to compensate. If you’re a heavy smoker, you’ll have to do the same in order to get a satisfying draw.
The 1.8% strengths Zaero’s have a non-existent throat hit. Even with larger draws I didn’t feel as much as a tickle. I wouldn’t suggest this strength if you’re trying to transition to vaping. The only time these might be useful is if you’re trying to taper down your nicotine consumption.
The draw is tight and much like a cigarette. It doesn’t take too much effort to pull and the draw activation works great. But again, even with the 5% strength disposables, you’ll have to take longer draws to compensate for the weaker throat hit.
I like the design of the Zaero disposables as well as how light they are but the performance and flavors could use some tweaking. The throat hit on the 5%, although weaker than other disposables, is satisfying but the throat hit from the 1.8% is non-existent.
There are only a few flavors I can suggest as an all day vape (Blue Razz, Orange, Menthol). These are good if you want something that’s easily portable and that you can just puff on and put away. But the other flavors can’t be vaped enough throughout the day to be worth picking up.
